Servicing customers throughout North America, the B&D Field Service Group rapidly delivers solutions to your door, whether it’s an emergency repair following a critical issue or routine maintenance during planned downtime.

And unlike other providers, B&D Service seeks to understand the “where” and “why” of machinery malfunctions. This allows us to rapidly fix the issue at hand and ensure customers do not have problematic repeat issues.  Our goal is to optimize equipment reliability, reduce downtime and increase your bottom line.

With multiple field service crews and strategic locations, we are able to quickly mobilize in emergency situations.
